How to Get the Judge to Agree to a Release on Bail

JudgeCourts do not automatically grant bail, especially if the judge sees you as a flight risk or as someone who will get into trouble. A Sacramento criminal defense attorney will work with you to determine the most appropriate bail strategy for your circumstances.

Regardless of what form of bail you receive, you can expect your release to be conditioned on certain restrictions. This is because bail entails a promise to appear, and the court wants assurances that you will meet this obligation.

Restrictions That the Judge Will Require

As your Sacramento criminal defense attorney will tell you. The restrictions the judge in your case imposes will depend upon a variety of factors, such as your criminal history, lifestyle, charges, etc. If you have previous convictions, for instance, you should expect that the restrictions will be greater.

Restricted Travel

Upon your release you will likely have to promise to stay in the county. If you must travel for work or family obligations, your Sacramento criminal defense lawyer can try to get you special permission. Additionally, you may have to abide by a curfew and notify the court of any address change.

Drug Monitoring

It is likely that you will be required to promise to refrain from drug/alchol use before the court will release you. In some cases, you must submit to random drug testing or wear a tether or SCRAM device to monitor blood alcohol levels. Let your Sacramento criminal defense attorney explain the specifics.

“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!" Boris
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
